The Lion's Courtship by Annelie Wendeberg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
1885 and Anna Kronberg is a nurse when Garret O'Hare forces his when into her lodging suffering from a gunshot wound. In this prequel to the series we read about the relationship of Anna and Garret, intermixed with a sadist who likes to cut prostitutes.
A depressing portrayal of Victorican London but still a good read.
